I'm imagining that the Synfig back-end and .sif file format will remain the same, but some extra functionality will be added to the Synfig Studio GUI to allow the user to quickly and easily say "make this layer follow this spline and rotate with it" or some such. Ideas welcome!" from = = Introduction = = . Outdated note.

-- --D.j.a.y (talk) 18:56, 18 April 2013 (UTC) Remove that "A large part of the problem is that in Studio, when you convert a ValueNode using one of the conversion types, Studio doesn't indicate which conversion type was used. There is room for improvement here." from = = Discussion = = . Synfig indicate which conversion type was used now. Right?

Cool! can you please post the sif file? That's fantastic doouglus! --Genete 09:00, 20 Sep 2007 (EDT)

OK the "more" link at youtube was not working this morning. Thanks! --Genete 10:28, 20 Sep 2007 (EDT)

Dooglus worte: Note that while it's possible to make a layer track a curve with just 2 points, there's no way of getting it to track a general curve (other than explicity saying "from 0s to 1s track from vertex0 to vertex1; from 1s to 2s track from vertex1 to vertex2; ..." which is possible, but tedious. If Synfig offered conversion types called "BLine Vertex" and "BLine Tangent" then tracking a general BLine would be much easier.

Can you explain how to achieve different traks of exported ValueNodes at differents frames? I believed that the Connect command connects a exported value with a ValueNode for all the frames and that is not possible to do it only for certain frames. --Genete 08:14, 21 September 2007 (EDT)

That is a very good point! I guess what you would have to do would be to make multiple copies of the layer, and have the 'amount' parameter turn each layer on only for the second it was tracking its part of the curve. That makes it even more tedious to set up... dooglus 20:47, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
